A big thankyou and sketch and stash challenge.

First of all A BIG THANKYOU to all you lovely ladies out there in blogland who helped me out, by answering my question yesterday about linking on the comment boxes.

What a fantastic community we have here, so I just want to say


Also I want to show the card I made for a little boys birthday on sunday(he will be 8).

I paperpieced a a lilypad instead of using a flower, so I hope this is o.k with the team.

I`m going to put this in for the sketch and stash challenge.

I stamped the frog image with an old stamp I hadn`t used for some time and coloured, using my promarkers.

The papers are from my new pad of K&Co- Hopscotch and i`m loving these, as the papers are all perfect for boys cards.

The sentiment is computer generated.

Stitched around some of the matting with my machine.

Hope you are all keeping safe and warm with the snow and ice we have all been having and catchyou all later. Hugs Val xxx
